Michigan brothers reunited after 25 years

Two Michigan brothers are reunited after being separated for more than 25 years. 

Logan Wakeham and younger brother Blayne Frey were adopted by two different families.

Curious about his past, Blayne set out to find his brother. His search through social media led him to Logan's adoptive mother.

Soon after that, the families were planning a reunion.

"My youngest daughter has already talked to him on the phone quite a few times over the last week. They've known that Uncle Logan is around and I was able to find him, and they're real excited to meet him and hopefully share a lot of memories with him," says Blayne. 

"I'm more excited than nervous [to meet him] right now. I always wanted to look for him but I didn't know where to start because I didn't know his name," says Logan. 

Turns out, Logan had also been looking for his younger brother on social media. 

The two eventually met at a surprise party in Battle Creek. Logan traveled down from Iron Mountain, which is in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. 

Both brothers have a lot of catching up to do, but have already discovered they both like cooking and playing video games.
